Very nice. Thank you.

 

Now, where does one find one in Canada?

If you don't want to break the bank look at ebay germany. Lot of ''user grade'' MB 12/14. 22/24 are generally available at reasonable price(auction format). Got two 22: one broad, one fine for less then 100$ a piece. Just make sure the seller accept paypal(lot of ebay germany sellers use direct bank transfer) and that they ship worldwide.

Thank you, I will look.

I bought my 14 on Ebay. It is a great pen. Mine also came with a lovely leather 3 pen case, the original instructional papers and warranty. Total cost was 200.00.

Thanks Peter for these informative videos! I actually purchased the MB 12 over at Geeks after seeing one of your videos. These are definitely of another era... fits in with the Imperials, Parker 51/61, Lamy 2000. I also like the fit in the hand. I don't require a big section or a large pen. This is a really light pen and I could see this being an advangage over long writing sessions.

 

The MB 12 reminds me of a child a Pilot e95s and a vintage Aurora 88.

 

Also I had no idea that the Montblanc 12 came apart when I bought it - so when I saw your video I was blown away and delighted. I'm not peachy keen on sending pens out for maintenance unless really necessary so even if I might pay a little more money initally for this piston filler - and its still not a lot - I think the fact that I can totally strip it any maintain it.

 

These videos should be required viewing for any prospective MB 12/14 purchaser, or anyone thinking about purchasing the other "lower end" models from that era.

Inked: Aurora Optima EF (Pelikan Tanzanite); Franklin Christoph Pocket 20 Needlepoint (Sailor Kiwa Guro); Sheaffers PFM I Reporter/Fine (Diamine Oxblood); Franklin Christoph 02 Medium Stub (Aurora Black); Platinum Plaisir Gunmetal EF (Platinum Brown); Platinum Preppy M (Platinum Blue-Black). Leaded: Palomino Blackwing 602; Lamy Scribble 0.7 (Pentel Ain Stein 2B); Uni Kuru Toga Roulette 0.5 (Uni Kuru Toga HB); Parker 51 Plum 0.9 (Pilot Neox HB)

Remember the 12/14 were not lower end, they were near the top.

Thanks Jar. That's right. I didn't mean to infer that the 12 or 14 were in the lower end, but there were other pens that were considered lower end like the 22 or 34. I think the MB 12 & 14 are classified as Meisterstruck.

 

I love these historical docs.

 

Interesting to see the Lifetime guarantee. Is it the Meisterstruck pens that would get a lifetime warranty? Parker and Sheaffer had to give those up years ago I think. How long did they keep up the lifetime warranty.

 

The OF nib for the MB 14 piqued my interest.

 

The vast :) assortment of inks for sale offered is interesting to note.

They were still using the term "Lifetime Warranty" as late as the 60s, maybe even the 70s.
